What to Read this Monday: Walmart Bribes their way into Mexico, NYC will not be next...

A New York Times front page story unveiled, Walmart bribed their way into Mexico, had an investigation, then covered it up.  They then admitted to to the bribery after the story broke.

A spokesman for Walmart said "If these allegations are true, it is not a reflection of who we are or what we stand for," which of course makes a lot of sense given their outstanding track record.

The news of the bribery has raised the eyebrows of many N.Y. politicians and has The Business Insider calling for resignation of the CEO.   And Walmart stock dropped sharply Monday morning.

With all this brewing, and Earth Day, the New York Observer is asking, If Walmart is Bad For the Environment, What about New York?

Adage writes on the slow process of Walmart's sustainability program.
